Memory Cameo of Papi Viejo


I am moved to tears on your passion for the work you do. The attention and the importance that you gave to the piece is so over-whelming.

Your talent and customer service goes beyond normal expectations, you literally make us feel as if you are part of the family and have experienced first hand what ‘Papi Viejo’ meant and continues to mean to us.

It’s unbelievable how you can allow us to carry our beloved ‘Papi Viejo’ with us to every special event. Seeing him on my moms favorite sweater or suit jacket makes us feel as if he is present. Thank you !! ..R.Collado, New York.

Portrait Photo for a Cameo


I can report complete satisfaction with the Cameo and extremely happy with the result. A quality product from a craftsman, Thank you…” by Bill, Doha, Qatar.

This gift was to honor and cherish the memory of a recently departed Grandmother. I was asked to design a Cameo necklace as a gift from a husband to his wife. She had become great friends with ‘June’.

The cameo is set in a Silver frame with an engraved personal message. I carved this gemstone portrait cameo from a 1940’s photograph from when June was young and living in Australia. The photo was old and faded. I used my knowledge of portraiture to fill in the missing details of her face.


Add a Personal Momento

I can add a compartment on the reverse of the pendant made of carved quartz to contain a lock of hair. I can also hand engrave an inscription and the signature of the departed person on the reverse of the setting.

If you have a Diamond created from your loved ones ashes we can add this to the cameo portrait pendant or cameo portrait locket. Why not have a Calligrapher write a special poem or tribute.

I can also provide an expanded photo book where I add photos taken throughout the persons life to tell their story. I did this with a recent memory cameo and the family were very pleased.


Your Family Deserves the Very Best for Their ‘Gift of a Lifetime’.
